The Ute & Bill Bowes Art & Architecture Library at dusk.

The Ute & Bill Bowes Art & Architecture Library was featured this week in Stanford News:

"Trees and thoughts go together; the students there, and me, too, are alone with our thoughts, away from the street, and the mind branches like the trees do. The feeling of being off the ground – of being levitated, even among all those heavy, heavy books – is something I love about Bowes.”

Kathleen Sullivan, Stanford News writer, takes her readers on A stroll through the Bowes Art & Architecture Library.
